    Ubuntu doesn't fill entire screen

    My Ubuntu installation (9.04) doesn't want to fill my monitor's screen. I have an ACER LCD monitor (P191W I think). This is what I see.



    I am not able to see the bottom panel because my monitor is refusing to view it full screen.

    Use the monitors menu to move the screen around... there is usually an auto config button on the monitor too.

    That doesn't work. I've already tried that. My monitor is iffy.

    Have you tried different resolutions just to see if it will fit?

    Anything below my resolution seems to fit.

    I know that in the BIOS for my computer (a Dell) there's something to change weather or not it does that for low resolution. Try looking around in the bios.
